"E.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law or regulation, the Board of Health shall not modify the geographic service areas of designated regional emergency medical services councils in effect on January 1, 2008, or make such modifications a criterion in approving or renewing applications for such designation or receiving and disbursing state funds."

(This amendment restricts the Board of Health from redistricting the regional emergency medical services councils to serve different geographical areas than are currently served by the councils. Further, the Board is precluded from making redistricting a condition of designation as a council or renewal of such designation, or as a condition of receiving state funding.)
